This is a delightful, sad, and surprising novel about an old Vietnamese refugee who comes to France and makes friends with an aging Frenchman. Both men have lost their wives, and the Frenchman had previously served in Vietnam and is full of guilt about his barbaric treatment of the Vietnamese.  The plot involves the forced separation of these friends as the welfare bureaucracy sends M. Linh off to an old folk's home to live among the living dead, where he is a virtual prisoner.   - David E.
